Actor, Television Personality. He will perhaps be best remembered for his hosting of the game shows "Tattletales" (1975 to 1977) and "Super Password" (1984 to 1986). More than a decade prior to beginning his association with game shows, Convy was a well rounded entertainer with television, film and stage experience, even enjoying a brief period as a recording artist. Born Bernard Whalen Convy in St. Louis, he was raised in Los Angeles by his mother following his parent's divorce. Convy was a standout athlete while in high school and pondered a career as a professional baseball player. While attending UCLA, he formed the music group The Cheers along with Gil Garfield and Sue Allen and scored a Top-10 hit with "Black Denim Trousers" (1955). By the end of the decade, he focused on an acting career marking his Broadway debut with "Billy Barnes Revue" (1959) and his movie initiation in the Roger Corman picture "A Bucket of Blood" (1959). Convy had guest spots on numerous TV programs, but his most prolific work as an actor was on the stage in the productions "Fiddler on the Roof" (1964 to 1972), "The Impossible Years" (1965 to 1967), "Cabaret" (1966 to 1969), "The Front Page" (1969 to 1970) and "Nine" (1982 to 1984). He received an Emmy Award for "Tattletales" in 1977. He died from brain cancer. (bio by: C.S.)
